Editor John W. Adams writes:
The March-April issue of The MCA Advisory has gone to press. It contains a definitive article on the Ricketts's Circus
Token by Roger Siboni; the author believes this token to have been used for entrance to the shows and thus one can imagine that any given
specimen was handled by George Washington or John Adams, both patrons of the Circus. This issue of The Advisory also contains a
story on the accession by the P.T. Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, Connecticut, of a gold medal given to Barnum for his work in the
Temperance Movement. This truly is our "Circus Issue".
The MCA Advisory is a great publication from a great organization of dedicated collectors and researchers. -Editor
